    Since the (Hard) dungeons are optional story elements (usually) Nidhogg probably did the dirty with a human secretly and we got to abort the baby the hard way.

    I really can't think of why we'd go back to that dungeon of all places besides something being re-animated, something we "somehow missed" (as usual too), some glorified old FF reference (probably Ouryu at this point) or to setup for Keeper of the Lake (Hard) in 3.5 Part 2.

    Also, the old stand-by Test Your Might could be a reason. I mean, it's the entire reason we go to hreasvelgr's sister's nest place. I forgot the names.

    Sohm Al is the dungeon we go to get to Churning Mists. It could literally be some NPC in Idyllshire wanting you to go there to grab something from the dragons.

    Inb4 anima weapon only goes to 270 and they make the 270 to 275 a separate grind later, just to enhance the grind

    You know they are. New Anima weapon model in 3.5. Final form in 3.55 at the same time you can buy the new gobdip from the new alliance raid.

    Egi glamour...."Can change summons into Carbuncles now."

    BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA...

    edit: ohgod, it's even worse. "Starting at 3.5, players can change their egi into red Carbuncle. More glamours will be added in later patches."

    ...because allowing 2 colors of carbuncle in the same patch would've been too much work.

    Probably created a special pet slot and made a rule for them to occupy that slot, I doubt the slot is active during duty.

    Too be fair two models are already used so I imagine its just going to let you swap Ifrit > Ruby, Titan > Topaz, Garuda > Emerald.

    I'm sure more will introduced with 4.0. Bet you they add some through the mog station.

    Fucking lol at the Feast being chat locked. As if Frontlines' chat lock wasn't retarded enough. Let's make it fucking worse.

    Anyone serious just uses voice comm anyway. But way to make the gap between shitlords and faceroll teams even bigger.

    Is this game dead yet? I doubt it. It'll take nothing short of hemorrhaging subs to send home the message that this content bike is on it's last wheel. 4.0 is where we're gonna see people start dropping off when they realize expansion to expansion nothing changes about the game.

    You know, unless Stormblood is amazing. *snicker*

    If they don't do something big with Stormblood nobody is going to fall for their bait any more. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.

    Hey but Diadem, and Wondertails and Palace of the Dead content and Raids with 4 bosses that no one cares about and gear that comes from raids that is often not even bis because the alternative is better, and 5 ilvls on a weapon that is often worse than the xx0lvl version because poor gear design, and stats that are so boring the thought that people cannot get it right still is jaw dropping.

    It's a pretty great game, yeah? It has final fantasy in the title.

    I dunno. WoW's not faring any better since going with legendaries. Its provided nothing but salt for people in the guild I was in and honestly the beats of Raiding aren't any different. Mythic+ dungeons are nice in that you can always push yourself but god damn I thought I got tired of running one of two dungeons daily.

    Considering what they've been hinting at with Stormblood I'm going to set my expectations to destiny comfort food levels.

    Thanks for the fix Bane. I think everyone needs to hear more about the expansion. If there aren't changes to the routine, no one is going to buy it. The recent Famitsu article gave me hope but I'm waiting on facts.

    Yeah yoshida said he's definitely sticking to the same formula. People were fooled with 3.0 (2.0 really) but I'm sure even the most die hard money tosser at mog station player wouldn't be too keen if 4.0 ends up being 2.0 version 2.
